Consequently, we understand the hesitancy of drilling holes into walls or even repainting walls for fear of losing a security deposit. But we don’t let those limitations stop us from enjoying — or personalizing — our homes. Quite the opposite! We actually enjoy searching out renter-friendly tools that help you make the most of your home. So, we decided to make it official and compile our gotta-have-it apartment hacks in a series called Renter Remedies. Here, we’ll be sharing our favorite game-changing apartment finds that won’t anger your landlord when you move out.

Below, check out the cleaning, storage, and organizing tools that our editors recommend for optimizing your rental space to meet your needs.
